Verdict reached in 2015 Ski Lodge Apt. murder trial in Opelika

LEE COUNTY, AL (WTVM) – The man accused of shooting and killing a 26-year-old at an Opelika apartment has been found guilty of murder.

Cordera Calloway was found guilty of killing Cordera Johnson in May 2015 at the Ski Lodge Apartments. 

The jury deliberated 30 minutes before reaching a verdict Thursday morning.

The defense maintained that Calloway was not at Ski Lodge Apartments the night Johnson was shot and killed.

During closing arguments, the prosecution pointed out cell phone records placing Calloway near the crime scene and putting him there when the fatal shots were fired.

Sentencing is scheduled for April. An exact date has not been announced.
